Uni Oldenburg VPN with ubuntu 10.04

Finally got the VPN of my university working. I will share how I got it working in case you study/work here and want to use it, too.

I found the VPN to be more stable when started from a shell:
sudo apt-get install vpnc
sudo nano /etc/vpnc/default.conf

Edit the config as following:
IPSec gateway 10.9.8.7
IPSec ID student
IPSec secret student
#IKE Authmode hybrid
Xauth username YOUR
Xauth password YOUR

Then just connect to the wlan and start the vpn with sudo vpnc.

If you want to use the network-manager, you need to install another package. However, I always get an error message about invalid secrets. If you have more luck, please let me know.
sudo apt-get install network-manager-vpnc
sudo service network-manager restart

    I use the VPN with network manager and this is how it’s configured:

    Great, thanks! Did have a wrong setting for NAT and then saw a typo in my group password. Now it’s working 🙂

    Hey,
    what group password is required? The same as the individual one?

    What about using the VPN not to connect to the WLAN but to access it e.g. from home?

    I’m trying to use it with the network-manager.

    Thanks!

    @Hannelore
    Hey,
    group password is ‘student’. I’m not sure whether it’s working from home, what do you need it for? If you want to access web sites available only within the university network, there’s an easy way if you are informatics student. Otherwise, I’m not sure, sorry.

    You can use the network-manager, see the above comment from Tante. Let me know if it was working or if there’s something else I can help with.

    Greetings from Cuba,
    Daniel
